    Hi there,

    It hasn't been shelved. We've been working on it as we can, have made quite a few changes to improve performance and fix bugs, however we haven't made a new public release in a while due to another major HME related project that we are working on finishing and didn't want to get in the way of supporting the final AudioFaucet product.

    We look forward to getting another release out and shareing the changes we've made over the past few months with everyone, we just can't release it until we have time to do a full QA sweep across OSX and Windows of the new functionality we've added.

    I don't have a timeframe on when the next public build of AF will be available. But I hope it will be in the November timeframe if all possible.

    Cheers,
    KC

    Oh, please do tell what the new HME app is? HME needs something new.

    Maybe it will be a YouTube app??

    WOW! What a beautiful app! I am simply amazed! Works great too. It is exactly what I wish the TiVo program did/looked like.

    PLease continue work on this program. I wish I would have known about it earlier.

    GREAT WORK! KEEP IT UP!

    EDIT: Like it so much I removed the Galleon Music / iTunes apps. Great work. Hope to see a final release ASAP.

    Question - Started AudioFaucet (Start up auto on PC startup) and it reported that a new version is available, however I cannot find any updates to the site. False alarm?

    That usually happens if you don't have interent connectivity or it cant reach our website for some reason (perhaps blocked by a stateful firewall) at the time that you launch the app. It's a bug :)

    Thanks. I hope to see a final release ASAP. As your website seems to suggest, you will charging for the final version. You most definitely have my $ on this project. I installed it just the other day, since then I have removed the majority of TiVo Desktop published folders, deleted the music related Galleon apps, and have used AudioFaucet enough to go through a decent amount of my MP3 music collection. Great progam, keep up the good work!

    I'm having a problem with Audio Faucet. I have the newest release of iTunes and AudioFaucet for windows. On the Tivo, I can see playlist names but not the contents. I can play the playlists but I don't see artwork or the mp3 tags. If I browse to genre or artist, none are listed. Is there a limit to the size of the iTunes library? AF worked for me in the past. The changes since then are iTunes 7, more music in library (almost 10,000 tracks) and a new computer.

    Thanks.

    - John

    John,

    Throw an email off to afsupport@digitaldroplet.net with the details (As much detail as you can) And we can try to work on the issue for ya.

    We have made some big steps forward with internal builds as far as playlists and music accounting go. We hope to have a refreshed build out in the next few weeks.

    Have a good weekend.

    Any chance for a linux version?

    HME is mostly Java, and Galleon can do it, some I'm hopeful :).

    I am extremely happy to hear that a new build of Audio Faucet is on its way.
    I love the app, little slow at times, but I am sure it is getting improved.

    KC,
    Since you made a comment about a new HME app, you MUST give some type of info on that..

    Just a little idea of what you are guys are working on would really please me..

    So hopefully you will post back here soon with some details..!!!!


    thanks,
    Chris

    I've been using AudioFaucet for months now, and I have to tell you how much I love it. My only real problem is that, as an iTunes user, most of my music is stored in .aac files. Does your new build have any support for that? I came across Dan203's TiVo Desktop Universal Audio Plug-in but since itworks directly with Tivo Desktop, it doesn't work with AudioFaucet. Thanks for such a great piece of software!

    It infact does :) It's part of the reason there's been a large delay in getting it into user hands. We did a rather large overhaul of the backend systems in order to support features like trascoding.. and a MUCH faster music browser and internal playlist control subsystem which can adjust based on your ability to transcode the music.

    We should have something in peoples hands shortly.... very shortly we hope. :)

    Are you guys going to support encrypted AAC, or just unemcrypted? Just wondering if you guys took a look at the stuff being done with QTFairTunes and incorporated it into your transcoding code?

    Right now we aren't touching Encrypted AAC. I have seen the QTFairTunes stuff, however I just don't feel like being sued by Apple over it :)
